When Zach was with the blue team, he was thrust into an offense built around relatively immobile Ricky Ray. Even though coaches added packages for him, it was important that he stay in the pocket and throw from there. He realizes that a CFL quarterback's best chance to have a long career is dependent on his ability to make quick reads and throw out of that pocket. Maybe he could have bailed earlier a couple of times, but I think he played damn well. Zach didn't even come close to turning the ball over in the biggest game of his young career, and he led a furious comeback that probably would have been enough save for an unfortunate illegal block.
One other thing, he had a concussion that kept him out five weeks and his backup had no experience. I know it was the Grey Cup, but the Cats would have been dead if Zach got hurt.
